In a recent briefing memo Arlington county staff reported that for the 6th year in a row, Capital Bikeshare usage in the county continues to grow.
Admittedly that is with more bikes and more stations in each year. In fact, in 2016 they've added 5 stations and expanded 6 others; still growth is growth and in June they set a record with 31,000 trips in Arlington. It will be interesting to see how the system grows as stations are added to Tysons Corner and Falls Church. Being at the center of several pods should create more trips than being on the periphery.
